had one of those days today, 106 done by 11am, but got stupid smily things on the heater lines top left n right and a few others else where.... tried to force them out with heat (in slight frustration), eventually after 4 redos (aaagh) I am leaving overnight to dry then to push em out (I hope) in morning (yes on a fkin saturday!). had this prob with a vw t4 b4 but never this bad.

Can only think its the shrinking path coupled with the raised heater lines????(spoiler cant be removed so shrinking a bit blind up top also)

Any one else know a solution for this????

You need to wire wool (oooo grade) the heater lines before you apply the film and as part of your cleaning process.

You will get better results shrinking with soap and not powder on those cars. You end up with a much tighter shrink.

Search the site for "MDog soap Shrink" - as you are in the UK, use the Dove soap brand.

cheers for that

ndog - had a feeling I read something a while back bought wire wool, cheers

up nice and early sat am to go and see if I can push the bstards out!

dont get me started on the matrix!!

thing is they are such a small car, like the saxo so you cant charge the earth for it and you struggle to get an A1 finish on the edge

this was a job that technically I finished yesterday at 11am! I love tinting sometimes!

And to top it off the car was being dropped off yesterday at 8am and as I left my house to travel all the 3 mins to go to my unit the guys dad was right outside my house by my tint jeep, just about to phone me as I was 5 mins late!! Some people.

With the matrix, I give them a sand on the rear but I glue the side windows.

For the rear, sand the dots and clean them with dot devil/wire wool, tell the customer that if he wants them to look better, he has to give them a push down with his thumb after a few days, if they dont go down, then try pushing each day until they do. They come out looking OK then.

If he complains... :spit

Cheers for that, it wasnt much better in the morning, managed to push them down ok though, said I will redo if it comes back over next few weeks, no problem with redoing it.

Just a bit baffled as to why it happened on that car and not any other 106's??? The sides are always a prob, I usually heat em hard on outside and push like a fool!

cheers
